Venetian mirrors

Venetians were the ones who revived the production of mirrors, which had been developed during the Roman era, and who managed to keep the process a secret until the Sun King (Louis XIV of France), to accomplish his hall of mirrors in Versailles, convinced a group of glassblowers to interrupt the monopoly of Murano.

Towards the end of the 18th Century, mirror plates began to be embellished and engraved. Influenced by Baroque style, mirrors became a blaze of curves, spirals and glass details.

To this day, the Ongaro e Fuga Venetian mirror uses decorative details to conceal the load-bearing frame, making a heavy to carry object with an intricate architectural make-up visibly delicate and extremely elegant.
